BenQ BL2710PT or 27 Dell U2713HM which one

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi first of all sorry for my bad english.
Now to the big question biggrin.gif I would like to know which of these 2 monitors are best suited for my purpose.
I would use them mostly for movie watching, work and occasionally gaming. My concern is that i have now a 24 BENQ FP241VW wit A-MVA panel.
And how would 720p and 1080p movies look on 2560x1440 screen. What about the input lag on these monitors is it severe or a causal gamer didn’t notice it at all.
On my Benq 24 BENQ panel i have absolutely no light bleeding so i can’t compare. If these monitors have it is it noticeable when watching movies?

I read these 2 rewievs about them here http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/benq_bl2710pt.htm and http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2713h.htm but i still can’t decide without some actual information from users who have them.
I can get the Dell for 510€ and the Benq is for 590€.
I found a post here about the Benq but with basicaly no information at all http://www.overclock.net/t/1400715/benq-bl2710pt-2560x1440-ahva-auos-version-of-ips-pls
Im specialy interested in that new AHVA panel thumb.gif but no luck so far.
And my last question whats your opinion about the cheap Korean monitors that everyone is so crazy about on this forum.
Please help me decide. Thank you for your advice.

720p & 1080p for 1440p:
- Those resolutions should look fine when scaled.
Input Lag:
- PRAD measured a 15.5ms signal delay for the Dell using an oscilloscope.
Source: http://www.prad.de/new/monitore/test/2012/test-dell-u2713hm-teil9.html
- PRAD measured a 0.9ms signal delay for the BenQ using an oscilloscope.
Source: Passed by a post on [H]ardforum that had someone who bought the BenQ review say it.
Backlight Bleeding:
- Dell's U2713HM has QC issues and may give you problems such as crosshatching and some backlight bleed.
- BenQ's BL2710PT may have backlight bleed issues due to the nature of panels.
- BOTH monitors suffer from IPS glow, although it's only really visible when you look from an angle. Basically, this problem replaces the VA's gamma shift issues.

The BenQ's AHVA panel is simply just another IPS clone IIRC.

The Qnix QX2710 Evo II can OC up to 120Hz, but as the Hz gets higher, the gamma decreases a significant amount which you can fix with an ICC profile.
- Image retention when OCed could happen, as I had seen a post somewhere in the Korean monitors thread that mentions this.
- The average signal delay of Korean monitors is 7ms.
- The build quality is not as good as the former two monitors.
- Dual-DVI only input.
- Cheap!
- Will have issues returning/exchanging the Qnix since they were sent from Korea. This is not an issue if you purchase from IPSLEDMonitors however.
If you have a rig that can run 100+fps in most games at 1440p, by all means get a Qnix since the 60Hz monitors would be a waste of your rig's potential.

While VAs typically have 2000:1+ contrast ratio, IPS monitors only range from 900:1 - 1000:1 with the occasional 1200:1 monitors. The black levels may bother you.

Based on this, it's really just up to the BenQ or Qnix. If you can barely get 60fps in games, you might as well by a BenQ OR you can get a Qnix and use the extra money to buy another video card for use in Crossfire or SLI, if you haven't already. It's all up to you.

Thnx for the early respons. I had a geforce 560ti and now i have the R280X so 60fps not a chance. But im not a hardcore gamer so 30fps is realy enough for me rolleyes.gif
But im reading now the http://www.overclock.net/t/1380527/official-dell-u2713hm-2560x1440-semi-glossy-ips-club/260 thread and the backlight bleed on these monitors look very bad IMHO.
I would like to know how the Benq is doing on this. So who has the monitor please respond biggrin.gif
